Results of Bruce Lee's Residence Ideas Competition announced

     The Organising Committee of the Ideas Competition for Bruce Lee's Residence today (January 23) announced the results of the competition after two months of careful deliberation.

     The Ideas Competition for Bruce Lee's residence, launched on July 20, 2009, aimed to turn the former residence of the late Mr Bruce Lee into an attraction to commemorate Mr Lee's contribution to martial arts and the film industry. Jointly organised by The Hong Kong Institute of Architects, The Hong Kong Institute of Planners and The Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors and supported by the Tourism Commission, the competition received an overwhelming response of more than 140 valid entries both local and overseas.

     The competition was open to all in Hong Kong, the Mainland and overseas countries and comprised two categories - the Professional Group and the Open Group. Prizes were presented to the winners at the Bruce Lee's Residence Ideas Competition Prize Presentation cum Exhibition Opening Ceremony today.

     A spokesman for the Tourism Commission said the competition entries were all of very high standard, adding that the winning entries would provide very creative ideas and concepts to restore the residence to its original appearance and to maximize the use of space for the provision of facilities such as an exhibition hall, audio-visual room, kung-fu corner, library and souvenir counter.

     "The competition was a step forward in taking forth the restoration project. The Tourism Commission will further discuss with the owner of the residence, Mr Yu Pang-lin, various issues that would bring the project to fruition.

     "Efforts will also be continued to gather information and source exhibits from various channels, including Mr Lee's family members and friends, to make this facility a real showcase of the life of the late kung-fu star," the spokesman said.

     Today also marked the opening of a territory-wide roving exhibition of the competition entries. The exhibition will be staged in Hong Kong City Hall from January 23 to February 4, Hong Kong Cultural Centre from February 9 to 16, and Shatin Town Hall from February 23 to March 6.
